AB webhost provides shared hosting, semi-dedicated hosting, VPS hosting, and domain registration services to customers around the world. In association with AttractSoft GmbH, this host has hosted over 500,000 websites over the years. Its data center is located in Sofia, Bulgaria, and its website is available in English.
Features and Ease of Use
The three shared hosting plans provide these features:
- 99.9% uptime guarantee
- 30-day money-back guarantee
- Weekly automatic backups
- Unlimited disk space
- Unlimited bandwidth
- Firewall, ClamAV, and SpamAssassin
Everything is administered via a control panel that lets you manage your domains, databases, emails, and FTP accounts.
If you want to code your website from scratch, you can use ASP.NET, PHP, Perl, Python, Ruby, and CGI. And your data-driven website can be backed by a MySQL or PostgreSQL database managed with phpMyAdmin and phpPgAdmin.
If you’re not comfortable coding your website, you can instead use the Zacky app installer to install content management systems, discussion boards, image galleries, e-commerce solutions, and more. You might also install a website builder.
Your hosted website will be served by the Apache webserver sitting on the Linux operating system, with servers having 50 Gbit network connectivity. RAID-configured storage uses replication to help guard against potential disk data disasters.
Pricing and Support
AB webhost’s shared plans are priced affordably, and the highest shared plan includes a free domain subject to certain conditions: you have to sign up for a year, it only applies to the first year, and only some domains are available.
You can pay by PayPal, bank transfer, Bitcoin, or WorldPay, on billing cycles from monthly to triennial, and first-time customers get a 30-day money-back guarantee that gives you a month to decide if this really is the right host for you.
A free demo is available for every plan, which allows you to try before you buy.
For self-support, there is a knowledge base and a set of frequently asked questions. If these don’t answer all your questions, you can contact the customer support team by telephone, ticket, email, or live chat. I got answers to my questions via the live chat channel:
